Meals: Last Week

2013-02-21 14.42.27(this photo shows the importance of good timing. Right after I took it, I left the table for thirty seconds and returned to find  the Striderling digging holes in the top of the egg casserole with his fork). 

Meals from last week:

Monday: Leftovers from Sunday’s Crockpot Taco Meat.

Tuesday: Bacon Wrapped Asparagus & Fruit Smoothies (first time making the asparagus this way; I’m a fan! Wrapped bacon around the spears and baked at 400 for 10 minutes, then flipped the asparagus and baked for another 8-10 minutes).

Wednesday: A total cheat. I was very sleep deprived (thanks, children) and the children were very clingy (probably also from being sleep deprived). So we, ahem, went to a chinese place for lunch.

Thursday: This Broccoli Egg Cheese Casserole, with peaches and bacon on the side. LOVED the casserole. It will be used again.

 Incidentally, having bacon twice in a week made my husband almost delusional with happiness. It’s usually a treat reserved for 1-2x a month, but I found some on major clearance at the grocery store and this week was a good one for it. Thursday the Striderling had speech therapy and it was at the time I’m normally fixing lunch, so I prepped the casserole ahead of time and Strider cooked the bacon during the session.

Friday: Omelettes ~ with mushroooms, cheese, and deli ham. Pears on the side. Another quick meal day thanks to therapy: physical in the afternoon.

Saturday: We were supposed to have a large group over to play test a game my husband is developing. One of the people, the best man from our wedding, came in Friday night to stay the week-end. I planned on making two pans of spinach lasagna (found mozzarella cheese for .50/lb here recently, an AMAZING markdown and had canned tomatoes that I’d purchased for less than .20/each), salad, and French bread.

 What actually happened: the Striderling came down with a horrible stomach bug  in the wee hours of Saturday morning and none of our afternoon guests wanted to risk exposure (can’t blame them). Our house guest/best man, a sweet soul, offered to provide take out for lunch so that I could take care of the Striderling. Then for supper we had venison and veggie soup: sauteed onions, garlic, and ground venison. Added canned tomatoes and spices (oregano and celery salt. would have done basil if we had it). let it simmer for quite a while. add more water, bring it to a boil, add pasta. When the pasta is close to being tender, add frozen mixed veggies. Topped with a bit of mozzarella cheese. Warm and nourishing! The pasta could easily be skipped in favor of beans or barley.

My husband’s lunches: were usually leftovers.

Breakfasts: Yogurt, Cottage Cheese mixed with fruit, Maple Pumpkin Oatmeal, Peach & Maple Oatmeal
